29 July 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the weekend, Arrow producers revealed that another hero will be emerging in Season 3, with the addition of Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, although the producers didn't announce who will play the character. Today, Deadline reveals that J.R. Ramirez has signed on to portray Wildcat.

Wildcat, who was created by Bill Finger and Irwin Hasen, first appeared in Sensation Comics #1 in 1942, a former boxer who doesn't have any superpowers, but uses his advanced fighting skills. There was a point in the comics where he was given the ability to return from the dead nine times.

In Arrow, Ted Grant runs a Starling City gym where he helps underprivileged children, who is hiding a mysterious past.

J.R. Ramirez To Play 'Wildcat' In Season Three Of Arrow; 'Black Canary' On The Way?

29 July 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Deadline reports that J.R. Ramirez has joined the cast of season three of Arrow as Ted "Wildcat" Grant. It was initially revealed at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con that the character would join the series, but there was no mention of who would be playing him. It's said that the role of Wildcat will be a recurring one. In the comics, he was a member of the Justice Society of America and served as both a mentor and trainer to the Black Canary. The description for this version states that, "In Arrow, Grant will be a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youth. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance’s arc this season." It sounds an awful lot like we'll see him training Laurel then (played by Katie Cassidy), so her becoming Black Canary could happen sooner than expected. »

The CW Adds Ra’s al Ghul Footage to New Arrow Season 3 Trailer

28 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The CW released the first Arrow season 3 trailer on Friday.  On Saturday, Stephen Amell announced that Ra's al Ghul will be the big bad in season 3, so The CW has released a new extended trailer that adds about 30 seconds of Ra's al Ghul footage at the end of the clip.  Ra's al Ghul was referenced several times in season 2, so fans guessed this was coming.  His presence in this footage is represented by camera pans across a faceless costume and ominous voice-over, so it will be interesting to see who the Arrow team casts as the immortal villain. Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Wolland and Caity Lotz along with new cast members Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh, Arrow season 3 returns October 8.  Check out the first look at Ra's al Ghul after the jump.  Some background on Ra's al Ghul from the comics: Ra's al Ghul »

The villain of Arrow season 3 is Ra’s al Ghul, new promo released

27 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After much fan speculation about Arrow‘s “Big Bad” for season three, it’s finally been made official: the Demon’s Head himself, Ra’s al Ghul, is making his way to Starling City.

The news was announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros./DC TV panel in Hall H late Saturday night. The announcement was followed by some comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who stated that the seeds for Ra’s’ arrival had been planted very early on:

“It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that’s because that’s because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. »

Wildcat to appear in Arrow season 3

27 July 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that DC comics character Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, would be heading to Starling City for an appearance in Arrow‘s third season.

For those unfamiliar, Ted Grant is a championship boxer in DC Comics, who became entangled in the criminal underworld and developed the costumed identity Wildcat to clear his name. Created by Batman creator Bill Finger and artist Irwin Hasen in 1942, Wildcat is a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and trained several members of the Justice League including Black Canary and Batman.

Nothing is known about his part in Arrow, such as when it will take place, how long he’ll be on the show, or who could play him, but executive producer Marc Guggenheim stated that he’ll have “some interaction with Laurel,” meaning he’s probably tasked with training her »

'Arrow's' Stephen Amell wants his Iron Man moment

26 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - Today, Stephen Amell sat down at a table of Comic-Con journalists wearing a hat with The Flash logo emblazoned on it. That is to say, the "Arrow" star is feeling pretty cozy about his show's crossover potential in its third season, as "The Flash" kicks off its first this fall. "Consider that for a second, my first Comic-Con was in 2012 and I was here and there was one comic book TV show that was about to be on air and it was us," Amell told HitFix. "There are five DC properties on television this fall. The fact that we are able to talk about crossovers is because -- and, granted, 99% of it is ["Flash" actor] Grant Guston -- we took a character that people really identify with in Barry Allen and boom. Got his own show." Amell mentioned that he'll be showing up in "The Flash" pilot, during a »

'Arrow' Season 3 Villain and 'The Flash' Crossover Details Revealed

22 July 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just over three months left until Arrow returns for its Season 3 Premiere, the producers have yet to announce which villain Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will square off against this fall. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg wouldn't reveal the new enemy's identity, naturally, but he did say that this season's nemesis will be much different than the revenge-driven Slade (Manu Bennett) from Season 2.

The season will be set six or seven months after the Season 2 finale, when crime goes down in Starling City and the police aren't chasing after Oliver's vigilante alter-ego. However, this year's villain will present a new set of challenges for Arrow.

"Slade had a very specific agenda-he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What's interesting about the villain in Season 3 is that he doesn't necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn't have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some »
